The Importance of Warming Up Your Engine

The importance of warming your vehicle before you drive can affect how it operates to its maximum potential. When you start your engine in the morning and it is fifty degrees outside, your engine is also fifty degrees ambient temperature. To use our engine before it gets up or even close to its operating temperate, it can cause it to wear quicker, it uses more fuel and in your hands will not last as long as an engine that was allowed to warm up closer to its operating temperature. Let your car reach the optimum operating temperature so you can have the car last and avoid costly repairs.

Tune Up Your Car, Save Gas

Tune up your car to save a ton of gas. When your car is not tuned, you will notice your MPG going down. A tune up consists of many things like the following: oil change, air filter replacement, tire pressure, spark plug replacement, distributor replacement, fuel filter  and much more. Most older vehicles with non-electronic ignitions should be tuned every 10,000 to 12,000 miles or every year, whichever comes first. Newer cars with electronic ignition and fuel injection systems are scheduled to go from 25,000 miles to as many as 100,000 miles without needing a major tune-up.

The Importance of Servicing Your Brakes

When you hear squealing and you don’t know what it is. Chances are, your brakes need replacing. It is very important to have your brakes in tip top shape for both safety and expense reasons. Safety is the greatest factor to change and have your car brakes working great. Money is the other because if the brakes go bad, chances are more parts will follow.
